During the Q&A portion of yesterday’s Windows 10 event, I asked Microsoft whether Windows RT would be upgraded to Windows 10. Apparently I misunderstood the answer as Microsoft this morning confirmed that Windows RT will not be upgraded to Windows 10. Instead, the ARM-based version of Windows will get an upgrade that provides only some of the functionality of Windows 10.
And with this single statement, I think we can declare that Microsoft’s Windows RT experiment is officially dead.
“Surface Pro 3 (and the entire Surface Pro lineup) will update to Windows 10,” a Microsoft representative told me, clarifying yesterday’s answer to my question. “We are working on an update for Surface [RT and/or Surface 2], which will have some of the functionality of Windows 10. More information to come.”
